    Considering if we were to invite our immediate family only and their SO’s that would be 18 people alone. And there are must haves above that. and then if I invite my one aunt, he has to invite his 7 etc…

    Therefore absolute minimum and still pissing people off would be over 50 people for us.

    75 or less. 100 is average. 200+ is large. There is no way that 200 is small by any means and most folks don’t know that many people. As a guest, I’ve been to quite a few that were 25 or less, but most were over 200.

    Anything under 100 is small to me!

    I wish I could have a small (under 50 people) wedding.  We each are inviting about 30 friends and then family, +1’s, etc takes it up to 90.  We’re obligated to invite family because my dad is paying, but I hope a lot of them can’t make it since I don’t even really know them. I’m really hoping our final head count is around 75 at the most.

    I’m having 50 people attend my wedding, and I consider that big! I am having panic attacks about how many people are coming! 50 people is a lot of people! My family is very large, but I cut anybody I see only once a year and managed to make it smaller. A small wedding IMO would be less than twenty.

    It is all relative- From the choices given- I think 50 and under is small.  To me, I guess anything over that is huge!  I think small is two people.  50 people is a lot!  To me, a wedding is an intimate experience.  However, different cultures, different locales, circles, so many variables.

    I’d say 35-75 people is small and under 35 would be intimate.

    We had 65 at our wedding and after removing immediate family we were looking at maybe 40 other family members/friends.

    I think around 50 is small. 100-200 is pretty average. Anything over 200 is geting large.

    But then, our guest list of 130 is all immediate family (1st cousins, direct aunts and uncles- no extensions farther than that), so I have a hard time judging it. I’m having family only… lol.

    We invited 80 (which I thought was medium-ish), and wound up with 55.  So I figure ours was small.  (I’d say maybe 70 is the most I’d call small, I think.)

    I think we’ll probably end up around 100 or just over.

    I want a small-moderate size wedding, as does the Mr. Our goal is to keep it as close to 100 as possible (it keeps creeping up). I do think that 100 sounds like a big number but doesn’t seem like an overwhelming amount of people once you are there (based on other weddings I have been to). Anywho, when i hear “small wedding”, my first instinct would be to think 50-75 people.
